The “SIFFx” event is a brand-new four-day festival within the Seattle International Film Festival showcasing the most current and creative thinking in virtual reality/VR, augmented reality/AR and 360°immersion. I want to give the SIFFx team a big round of applause for pulling together both the best speakers in the VR/360 storytelling business as well as the technology to make it all happen.
